Good evening from a warm Hastings Evening. I hope everyone up north are keeping warm and safe with your storms.  Brave men playing football in minus temperatures.

Anyway  these are my original images.  I have lots of photos of reflections so the other day on my walk I decided to take some more photos of shadows.

First stop was GIMP to add some texture and details with the canvas and cartoon filters.

Then it was over to FX Photostudio Pro to add some vignettes  and vintage filters.

A Word a Week Photograph Challenge: Shadow

DSCF1568 1

Good morning from another sunny Hastings.

This weeks word from A Word in Your Ear is shadow.  So I immediately remembered taking these photos last autumn at Frimley Park.  Actually I had gone up to take photos of the sunset as I thought it would be a better place as you have a better view of the sky.  The sunset didn’t eventuate but I found these really long shadows instead.  It was just starting to cool down as well so there was a slight touch of frostiness in the air.

They have all been given a vintage touch with All Vintage Studio as I wanted a retrospective feel to them.

It is funny how you notice the long shadows in autumn, not not in spring.  I suppose the sun is getting stronger in spring and you look forward to the longer warmer days.  But in autumn all the long shadows do is remind us that winter is on it’s way and that the days are getting shorter.

Enjoy the photos.

A word a Week Photo Challenge – Lines

Lines 3

Good morning from a  sunny Hastings,

This weeks challenge by A Word in Your Ear  is lines.  So I went through my photos and found these photos from last winter taken at Cornwall Park.  I liked the way that the shadows of the trees continue over the bank of this stream and into the water.  I also framed all these photos with the Lines frame from ImageFramer. Rather appropriate I thought.

You can see the shadows on this pond as broken lines.

These two photos are taken at the same time, but from different view points.
